    Hello Everyone - I'm in the process of finishing my basement and I wanted to insulate my monoflo pipe. My question is about the type of insulation I should use - I see on Zoro they have pipe insulation with a temp range up to 200 degrees, I don't think the pipe exceeds that temperature. I...

    Registers in one room have noticeably warmer (not "warm", but less cool) air than other rooms. All rooms are on the same zone/unit. The room with the warmer registers branch from their own main trunk duct. This room also happens to be the closest in proximity to the ac unit. The ducting is in...

    Thinking of converting an alfresco into a patio room by enclosing the two open sides of the alfresco with glass. This is what the alfresco currently looks like: The "room" will be used as a part time bedroom and for storage. May consider putting sliding door on either glass wall for...

    Crazy Colorado weather. I poured 4 ft. deep, 10 inch diameter piers for a pergola on Sunday - 95 degrees, 60's at night. Monday afternoon, temp dropped to the 70's/50's at night. I came home from work to 5 inch hail drifts covering the piers, with 4 inches of standing water & hail on top of...

    I need to run a low voltage multiconductor cable (30V) through the attic above an attached garage. I'm wondering about the flame test rating & temperature requirements. 1) Is riser rated cable required? I believe not, though I'm looking for confirmation on this. 2) What temperature rating is...

    My thermostat turns on the a/c, and the temperature in the house drops, but the temperature reading on the thermostat actually rises, which means that the a/c doesn't turn off. I replaced the thermostat, thinking this would solve the problem, but it didn't. The same thing happens with the new...

    I had the mercury type thermostat and changed it out for a touch screen. It works fine, but my question is, why do they seem to put these in a hallway which has no vents. I have the unit set to only run after 2 degree out of range of a set temp of 72. We have our attic steps right above this...

    I'm rough finishing part of my barn, insulating and starting to put up some sheetrock, adding some heat but it will only be heated while I'm in it a few hours at a time. Here in upstate NY we can have cold spells where it gets below zero for a few days with highs in the teens and in the summer...
